“Innotation” V. Annotation

Here is a poem I have worked out this morning to include in my post below. You can annotate the poem on the post using Hypothes.is or you can do what I am calling “innotation” within this etherpad. I don’t know if there is any difference between the two, but I am hoping some readers can let me know whether it is different OR whether it is a distinction without a difference.

Dictionaries, Like Canaries in the Coal Mine

I prefer to look
for words I don’t know
in the pith and spine of a dead tree:
the riff of pages
the algorithm of alphabet
the sniff of glue and dark ink.
I prefer these analog assaults
to my senses,
Prefer them to the frictionless
ease
of
one
unloveable
click.

Here is the etherpad version with the innotations.
